Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Gastrointestinal Low Fat LF Canned Dog Food
It's good for our dog who has pancreatitis.
Because our dog, 20 lb. & 10 yrs. old, has pancreatitis, we must give her only this product. Because of the extremely high cost, we try to use one can over 2 days supplemented with the dry in between. I leave the dry food out all the time, and I give her about a fourth of a can in the morning, and a fourth in the evening. She likes it and eagerly awaits her "canned meals". I really don't like the new cans, because it's difficult to get all the food out that sticks beneath the rim after opening. With the cost being so high for those of us on a fixed limited income (retired), we try to take good care of her, but I don't know how long we can keep up this costly maintenance. Is there any possible way we can reduce the costs??? Our Vet says she will die if we don't use this food! I DO appreciate your timely service when ordering!!! Thank you.

cornmeal & gelatin byproducts were added & an oz removed
from their new pull tab can. You have to dig it out of the can because it is too dry. The added cornmeal and gelatin byproducts (horse hooves?) don't sound like a better idea. Celulose is an ingred. Maybe it is in other foods. Time to read labels with a magnifying glass. I think I will look at Science Diet RX.

Product is working well!
My dog has lymphangiectasia, an intestinal disease and was referred to this product. It is working great even though my dog is ALWAYS hungry, but she is healthy now after switching to this. She loves it!!

Thank Goodness for this Product!
My dog has lymphangiectasia (rare and life-threatening disorder of the duodenum that requires feeding an extremely low-fat diet) and this is one of two of the lowest fat dog foods on the market. I love the new pull-tab top...better than grabbing a can opener. My dog happily eats this food and I am grateful that it supports her strict dietary restrictions.

Low fat digestive issues
This was recommended for my schnauzer about 5 years ago and has made the difference with his pancreatitis. Not an issue anymore great food!

Excellent for dogs with gastrointestinal issues
This was recommended by my vet after an incident of pancreatitis, exacerbated by the fact that my English Spaniel thinks he is a goat, and will eat anything he can find, even though I try to keep it far out of his reach. This food helped his stomach calm down and he recovered quickly. It is quite expensive, but since my dog is almost 13, I was advised to keep him on it. Aside from finding a box of chocolate-covered caramels (wrapped in paper and ribbons, and on a high bar sink), which required stomach-pumping, he has been fine.
